Well, I am happy to see and use the archive. I started taping with a Nak 550 deck and never had a set of mics, so as shows went, I had to find various patch's. That resulted in some good tapes and some lousy. I found the guys I liked to tape with but when I'd go out west or something the NYC boys were not there and I'd be late or whatever, so the sound of my tapes changed all the time. At least now, I have a more consistent sounding library. (My wife took about 600 hrs in an ugly divorce)But what I really use the archive for is to explore new bands and share them with others. I'm totally addicted to putting obscure, new fillers on cd's and making recordings of new(to me) groups.
But, there is one thing I have noticed when I've taped other bands that allow taping. Many times venues are totally unaware that bands allow taping. In 2000, I sent a MD out west to go on tour with The Tragically Hip, one of my recordings at The House of Blue's in L.A. actually has the taper being harrassed by security and then he had to mention Mark Vreeken's (sound guy) name and they eventually let him continue recording. I never had those problems with The Dead or JGB or even Phish for that matter. I just wish venues and groups were a little more dialed in to each other. But, having been on the other side of the fence I really do know how green the grass was. Anyhow, the archive pretty awesome and I am thankful for it every day. Pat

The link to the Lindley article doesn't work. Apparently the "News9" page has been yanked, but pages "News2-7" still exist. Anyone have other access to this essay? I'd like to read it.

BTW, is now totally rewritten and available at that url. It refers back to the prior "draft" which is gone and so some of the key context is actually missing. But it's yet another interesting read.

He expands on the "psychic energy" concept in one section.
